BuildHer Collective Co-Founder Rebeka Morgan On Empowering Women In Construction, On TDF Talks

Some of our most popular stories on TDF are the nitty gritty how-to guides on creating an achievable, beautiful home. If you’ve been following along with our ‘Everything You Need To Know About Working With A…’ series, then you know what I’m talking about!

There is a huge appetite to demystify the renovation process, from design to construction, and Rebeka Morgan and Kribashini Hannon launched BuildHer Collective in 2017 to do exactly that. Their program of online courses, consultations, in-person events and collaboration projects gives a comprehensive education and support framework for those looking to take on their own building projects.

In this episode of TDF Talks, Lucy chats to Rebeka (who is a registered builder), about her experience as a woman in a male-dominated industry, her advice for others looking to embark on a renovation or building project of their own, and the most common mistakes to avoid!

It’s like a mini masterclass!
